The Audubon society in our state maintains several hiking trails that are within driving distance from us.

We have been taking advantage of these nature trails this summer before we strike out on unmarked hikes later this fall.

Along with the danger of mosquitoes and poison ivy, we keep our eyes open for falling tree limbs and the occasional quicksand areas around the water.

On one hike we came upon a broken glass bottle that was partially hidden in the leaves on the forest floor.

This carelessness of another reminds me that some of the danger in this world comes from our fellow man, whether meaning to or not, and one needs to keep aware of all.


  1. I used to do a lot of mountain biking, most of the stuff I had to watch out for was man made crap, bottles, parts of cars, ect.

  2. Although the contrast it creates in your photo is quite lovely, the sadness that you found this out in nature is overwhelming. For that reason, it is a powerful photo. Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage

  3. ...unfortunately we have same old story around my place, hate when I see Tim Horton cups, beer bottles and now graffiti is just another story....on the other hand you can get money for beer bottles here in Ontario, Canada, and I think not everyone knows yet...

  4. That is a reminder for all of us. Did you pick up the pretty blue bottle and take it home, put a flower in it?
